The APS Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale 2017‎ : Giuseppe Galea, The Academic Years Rome 1933-1938

Image
The Maltese artist Giuseppe Galea is arguably one of Malta’s finest decorators as can be demonstrated by his impressive portfolio.This exhibition highlights the life drawings he undertook when in Rome. He studied life drawing under the tutelage of the great Maltese sculptor Antonio Sciortino and these drawings are specifically from this period. These works in particular have been selected to show the artist’s skill and technique. 



His drawings are undoubtedly classical in their manner and reveal the keen eye for detail that the artist possessed. The Mdina Cathedral APS Contemporary Art Biennale 2017 has decided to highlight this unfortunately under-represented element of the artists capability as these drawings display Galea’s talent and extensive technical knowledge.

Date: October 7 – October 20

Venue: Mdina Cathedral Museum ,Triq San Pawl, Mdina, Malta

Sesame Street Live Show

Image
Sesame Street Live provides a unique musical opportunity for you and your child. As a child's first theatrical performance, it marks the beginning of a lifelong journey of enjoying and learning through live performance. Here are a few things to remember as you plan your visit.

Most children are familiar with entertainment that happens on television and computer monitors. Explain that this will be different, because there will be a story happening live in front of them. The story doesn't stop if you leave the room, but there will be a break in the middle.

Have fun! Sing along, dance, clap, and join in the audience participation elements. But, be safe as well as considerate to those around you. Please don't allow your child to stand on chairs or put your child on your shoulders.



Talk about the show afterwards. Which character was your child's favorite? Do you remember some of the songs? Did you learn new words in Spanish? Did you count along with the Count? Reinforce the sh…

The Phantom of the Opera

Image
Seen by over 100 million people worldwide, Cameron Mackintosh's THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is the highest grossing musical of all time. Now in its 31st record-breaking year, this multi-award winning musical continues to captivate audiences around the world. This will be the Premiere of the show in Malta, bringing THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA for the first time to our shores. 

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist. 


Andrew Lloyd Webber's mesmerising score magically brings to life this tragic love story which will be masterfully performed by a 45 piece Orchestra lead by Mro. Paul Abela. A cast of 65 members will be gracing the stage, including Malta’s leading Musical Theatre performers as well as from the West End.

Ministry of Sound is back in Malta and this time headlining the event will be the The Super Star  DJ - LOVRA all the way from Ministry of Sound

Min Hu l-Malti? Exhibition

Image
Min Hu l-Malti?" (Who is the Maltese?) is a digital installation representing migration in Malta, both present  and past, economic and political, will be exhibited at the Malta Postal Museum for the duration of 2 weeks, organised by the Malta UNESCO Youth Association and Sara Pace Artworks.

This project started out as a personal question, by Sara Pace, into her own background and genealogical roots. She was prompted to follow this research by questions asked about where she is from. Sara was asked this question both when she was abroad as well as from foreigners living in Malta and sometimes even by other Maltese while in Malta. They always replied to my answer by saying ‘But you don’t look Maltese!’. This made her look at herself critically, asking both what instigated people into believing she was from another country and what makes a person be from one particular country and not another.

Local band Relikc - The Code of Antics album launch

Image
This could be the next big thing on the local scene.   Don't miss Relikc's album launch.

In 2015, they released a four-track EP titled “It’s Not Misspelt”, a comedic title, taking a jab at the unconventional spelling of the band name, Relikc. 



The EP contained a number of songs that they had been saving for a future album, however, the members soon realized that they had grown from their school years, and their writing style had matured towards a more refined and consistent genre. 

They decided it was best to release the songs as an EP and start over with a totally fresh outlook. Three music videos were also released to the public alongside the EP, keeping the band busy for most of the year.

He's been exposed to the real stuff from day 1 and still holds some of the best records known to Dj's. Add a stellar catalogue of producers on his label 'Dockside Records' which has been running for 6 years and you know this man screams quality. Humble in his approach but in your face with the music we are particularly excited about seeing your reaction to his selection. For this year we have a wh…

The Crystal Palace - Ballet

Image
The music of the famous contemporary composer Alexey Shor has been specially selected for this performance. Shor, like no other, connects Russia and Malta through his musical pieces. Born in the former Soviet Union, he is now a composer-in-residence with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra Academy.




Based on historical archives, Russian theatre professionals will recreate the atmosphere of the 18th Century using original Baroque decorations and costumes for the Valletta pre-premier.

“The Crystal Palace” takes place in 1740, at the court of the Russian Empress Anna Ioannovna. In the capital, luxurious celebrations have been organised. In one of them Her Majesty learns about two sweethearts and orders them to marry. But the hearts of the lovers are not filled with joy. For the bride and the groom, by the order of the Empress,  must spend the winter night after the nuptuals in a specially-erected palace, where the walls, the bed, and even the flowers, were made of ice.

How to be Maltese in an hour - Comedy show

Image
“How to be Maltese in an hour” is a unique comedy show written, directed and produced by The Comedy Island that is set to teach visitors to our island all about the weird and wonderful traits of the Maltese – the greatest (!) people on earth!



What is “The Comedy Island?”

The Comedy Island is a fresh new initiative put together by Steve Hili and Wesley Ellul. Steve is a professional Maltese comedian and comedy writer based in London, and Wesley is Malta’s top Comedy Producer with hits such as The annual “Comedy Knights” show and “Rock of Ages”.

But…why?

There are lots of shows that talk about the great history and culture of our country. However there is very little that actually gets into the nitty-gritty of what it means to be Maltese – warts and all! This is the show that does just that. From food to the festa, via politics and the national obsession with the Eurovision this show will make you understand what being Maltese is really about!
